Good point. Well, our brain is very complex, but in the case of determinism (as you mentioned by knowing the exact initial states of all the matter) our brain would always decide the same.
Also you mentioned a very interesting thing about the spontaneous decay. My quick argument is that: we...
Well, I would say there IS an imaginary experiment. And that is to prepare two absolutely identical systems which are known to have a random nature and monitor their evolution. The two systems should be the same in an infinite accuracy. I am not sure if it is possible! but it is the simplest plan.
Do you know of any theory or evidence that shows the real world is (or is not) deterministic?
By "deterministic" I mean: If we give exactly the same initial conditions to any system in the world, does it evolve to the same state?
I have seen in text that it used an unfamiliar unit for fine-structure energy difference in a species. The unit was: cm^-1.
I need these energies to do some statistical calculations in exp(-beta*E). Can anyone tell me how can I convert this unit or convert beta to this unit?
Dear Shooting star,
Thanks for writing. But I'm looking for some techniqe jist similar to one we use in Lagrangian viewpoint as undetermined constants and the way we treat with constraint equations there.
My question is about the constraints in Hamiltonian viewpoint. I mean, where the constraints are put into the Hamilton's equations. Constraints are usually studied in Lagrange's equations in text books (such as Jose and Goldstein). However, I couldn't find anything about constraints in...
I read a book named :Statistical Mechanics:An Introduction; by Trevena.
I really enjoyed the approch of it. It had some really interesting approches to build the distributions.
I really advise it. But not as the complete book you need!!!
there are some theoretical ways to time this delay. You can see it in details in any books relating to the control sciences. But I'm affraid about the existance of any experimental method (because of the your accuracy limits).
Anyway, Good Luck!!!
well, as an Iranian!, and a person who was working on a research project in Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, I believe that there is no atomic weapon production in Iran. everything is just peaceful.
Many people in Iran believe that, it is just a scenario from USA. In fact, they want to do...
I need some useful and conceptual book in advanced statistical physics.
I can understand the mathematics in some famous book such as Pathria, but I have trouble understanding some concepts in that area.
Thanks in advance.
I'm studying Wybourne book on group theory. I didn't understand this expression:
I know what U(p+q,C) and U(n) means, but I'm unfamiliar with the notation of the above statement.
Thanks in advance.
I want to know what do they mean by "action at distance". I know the concept of field(!!!) and the meaning of "space geometry effects". I wanted to know something about the history of this concept.
As you know we use the experimental methods to confirm our theories. so we measure some quantities to have a sense about the errors may occure. In some of these experiments we do not measure the considered quantity but another quantity that later relates to the desired one with ANOTHER THEORY...
